Hello everyone. I'm new to these forums and have some questions that I hope some people with more experience in animating can answer.

Hello everyone

New to the computer animation world, just started my academic career as an online student at Full Sail University in Florida.



I'm Andrew. I'm a graduate with a BFA in Media Arts and Animation. I mostly work in traditional animation. I haven't been animating recently because I lacked a means of capturing my animation, but now that I have one, I will be getting back to animating.


Hello everyone I´ll become animator and I´m hero to try to learn...


My name is Chris Manabe. I'm a visual effects supervisor and artist who's worked in the visual effects industry over the past 20 years. I've created and designed visual effects for such big movies as Star Wars: Epidose I – The Phantom Menace, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Clash of the Titans, Green Lantern: First Flight, G-Force, Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, The Tigger Movie, as well as the visual effects for major T.V. shows like Star Trek: Voyager, Basket Case the Greenday music video, Dan Dare: Pilot of the Future, The Deadliest Warrior, and I've worked at big visual effects studios like Sony: Imageworks, Technicolor, Prime Focus and Foundation Imaging.

Its me

I am a software engineer working in a MNC in India. I am here to know what are the technical skills should I develop to be a part of an animation movie.

Hi there

I'll keep this reply short and save my intro spiel for my first post. In a nutshell I love cartoons, I wish I could draw well and/or animate, I love music, I am FAR more skilled with music than animation, and I would LOVE make music for people's animation projects.

Used Maya professionally for 10 years now. Have recently rekindled an old desire to create 2d animation. In trying to figure out the best approach and workflow, I came across tis place.

So, hello everyone! You might bump into me mooching around here :)

New animation company

Dear All,

I've recently joined an animation company and am eager to learn more about the business as I build my career literally from step one (I'm currently an assistant).

I love all kinds of animation, from the classic Disney shorts to Tom & Jerry to Iron Giant and Paperman.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Best wishes,

What's up people!?!?

I am not an animator BUT, I'm here to admire work, learn some things, and hopefully find an animator to work with.
I'm a producer and a emcee at TwistedVizionzEnt.
We're looking for a animator to become a member of our team, to make videos for songs. This is an example..

Hello, my name is Daniel and I look forward to discussing animation with everyone!



my name is Ruben (surprise!) I'm a Dutch animation student. Currently i'm working selflessly to improve my skills and just suck up as much as i can about this craft. I would LOVE to work at a big studio in Burbank be it TV or Features. But i noticed it's difficult to get a visa as a non USA citizen. Plus i need to improve A LOT before even attempting to apply for any job there :]

Nice to meet you guys

Hi, I'm an aspiring illustrator and animator.

Well, here I am. :-)

I am a very new animator- self taught, so obviously there's going to be gaps so big in my knowledge you could throw a cat through them. Please don't throw cats at my head.

Though I'm new, I'm not entirely green. I've tried out all kinds of software, yada, yada, yada, dropped money on plenty of them to find they wouldn't suit my needs, yada, yada, yada, wondered if I was simply nuts, yada, yada, left animation entirely for standard filming, returned after realizing the greater freedom in animation and here I am in the middle of a project I'm hoping to get to the networks- just like everyone else- single-handed.

I'm a better writer than animator, which is to say I'm a lazy animator. But, I'm comfortable in my laziness. There is a certain style to it that would make true masters of detail, form, timing and art want to stab my eyes out with a pencil- or simply serve me a cup of cold coffee when I'm hoping for hot.

Along my journey I've had time to consider the direction of current animation. Mind you, I grew up on the classics- early Warner Brothers, Disney (pre-90's), Felix the Cat, Mighty Mouse, etc. I guess my roots lie in 2D. I know there's an ongoing debate, and one can argue well for either (though I seek good conversation rather than arguments), I guess it comes down to preference and what serves the story best. As a writer, I often feel concern that the visual 'excitement' of 3D is a slight of hand to distract from a relatively weak or cliche'd story. Must we always push the boundaries and who does it serve?

Anyway, I won't post any shorts until they're complete, the animation will be laughable, but hopefully the stories within them will be as well- in a good way.

Nice to be here.

Hi there, I'm Ritz. I just graduated from a three year college course of 3D Animation and CGI and I've been looking for work. I found these boards by accident, but it looks like a nice community and I could definitely use some motivation and criticisms in regards to the demo reel I'm trying to put together :)


I am currently involved in the world of laser scanning and 3D model production based off of point cloud data. While researching multiple softwares I have become very interested in the world of animation. I also have questions that maybe this group can assist me in answering as I gain more experience.
